Deepavali 3:03 PM
Last Friday there was a gathering for Deepavali at an Indian restaurant..
I cannot remember the name of that place but the food taste the same as
other Indian restaurants i ate in Dallas.
Upon arrival, we had our photo taken. Seems like polaroid is a tradition for all events now,
i am not complaining though! I love it!
I dress velle in green because i thought it fits the occasion LOL
Green is the right color right?
So there was games, performance and everyone had fun!
Not a big fan of Indian food but i enjoyed the nann..
I fed velle beforehand so I was quite relax haha!
Sat too near to the buffet line and i came back smelling like curry zzzz
Wanted to skip the night bath one sia~

Niagara Trip Day 4 10:47 AM
Day 4 - Our last day at the Falls
Last day of our trip!
You might be sick of looking at my repetitive pictures of the falls,
but somehow, I feel that I am not done with this place!
There are few places that i have not cover, and hope to be back here maybe a few years later?
Eating the same omelette for 3 mornings but still not bored of it! YUMMY
Snap some pictures of the room before checking out!
I suck at taking indoor pictures! The sunlight is bright outside but the room is dark,
so no matter how i adjust the ISO it still looks like crap...
Any pros here? I am thinking to invest in a external flash for my camera though.
To knock is human. To let me sleep in, divine.
Our king bed, but still got attacked by velle's flying kicks
Jacuzzi that we didn't have time to use =_=!
Area invaded by me HAHA
Check out early and head down to Clifton hills because i wanted to see how it is like there~
Hubby actually overheard someone saying this place is costly and their "games" isnt that good.
Built to rip tourists like us.
And then we finally found the Upside down house!
Velle kept asking " mum why the house like that?"
Not sure why the house isn't open that day..
Chlovelle really wanted to go on this ferries wheel but we didnt have the time
Velle is actually wearing 4 layers! The sun is strong but the temp was below 10 degrees
Sorry, cannot get enough of the falls LOL!
It wasnt cloudy that day, but according to hubby we should be able to see rainbow before noon FROM
the USA side, but after noon, we should see a rainbow from the Canada side.
SO~ we didn't get a picture of a rainbow LOL
A good excuse to come back next time.
Headed back to Buffalo airport!
What a beautiful sight!
After so many lousy flights, our last flight back was actually GOOD!
We sat near to the front and it was spacious!
Velle took a 2 hrs nap, which i very much appreciate it lol!
Another magnet to add on to our collection!
( I rmb i saw it on TV that magnets actually affect the cost of electric bills is it? hmm)
So this is the end of our 4 days Niagara trip!
I hope you enjoyed the pictures as much as i do! (:(:

Niagara Trip Day 3 - White Water Walk/ Whirlpool Aero Car/ Niagara on the lake 3:26 PM
Day 3 - White water walk/ Whirlpool aero car/ Niagara on the lake
It turned cooler on Day 3, temperature was around 11 degrees that morning..
Hubby was surprised I consistently wake up for breakfast haha!
I am actually a bad travel partner, always waking up late & skipping breakfast~
After breakfast, we drove down to White water walk.
Luckily it was a non-peak period, they actually had free parking lots! Whee~
Nice picture taken by a tourist before starting our morning walk!
Whirlpool rapids is the lower part of Niagara Falls ( from my perspective)
Hubby said it is a Class 6 rapids, & to me it means if anyone drop in,
they will probably drown
A simple map to help you understand where are we at!
White water walk is at "whirlpool rapids"
I enjoyed the flow of the rapid and walks like this,
but i dont think so for velle, so snacks will help me occupy her a little~
Walkway along the rapids
As we walk the temperature went up to 16 degrees pheww~
Family photo to end the walk.
Taken by a nice old man (:
He's cute because i initiate to take a picture for him and his friends,
then he instructed me to press the on/off button to snap a picture (which ofcourse i didnt follow)
So after the first shot he told me to press the power button again, then realizing he is wrong~
HAHA he is super embarrassed man..
Next stop, Whirlpool Aero Car!
It is further down of the falls after the rapids whirlpool
Boarded this antique cable car that only operates from the Canada side..
A short ride above the whirlpool rapids, that to me, wasnt that whirlpool-ish
I was expecting literally a boat or fish swallowing whirlpool HAHA!
rapids from the white water walk
After the whirlpool this is where the water continue to flow~
So pretty & amazing how nature formed
Reach the other end and we were instructed to walk to the other side of the cable car
for a change of view
Trees and more trees~
People down there!
I want to get there too.... but we didnt know how~
Bye! See you again next time!
Continue our journey to Niagara on the Lake~
On our way there, we stop by some scenic point
IT IS SOOO PRETTTYYY~
Following the road along the river,
we finally reached Niagara on the lake.
Their starbucks look like a house!
Their pastry look so good! But the shop has bees flying around their pastry...
I was so scared and turn off. YUCKS
Had our lunch at a quiet cafe,
food wasn't that fantastic
With my little clone while waiting for daddy..
After lunch i insisted to get some buns for velle as she didn't eat much..
A decent bakery further down the road plus it is so clean!
Prices are reasonable too~
We had chocolate croissant, which is so super duper good!
Chocolate oozing out from the centre!!
Soon enough, it was time to head back to the car!
We parked at a some timed parking, and the max was 2 hours~
A big piece of lake~
This, i believe, is the end of niagara river...
The river flows on to Lake Ontario (refer to map above if confused)
Oooo i like this tree!
The owner, who is sitting on his porch, didn't even mind when we slow down for a picture..
Probably used to it already~ haha!
Floral clock of Niagara Falls
This is one of the must see attraction at the Falls, which i have no idea why~~
Last attraction of the day, Niagara Fury
It is included in the Adventure pass we bought..
A 4D show of how Niagara is formed, quite a cool show with lighting and thunder
It was raining when we got out of Niagara Fury,
so we settled our dinner at TGIF at the hotel's lobby.
Their food was good but it came out lukewarm, as if it was left there for quite some time
before it was served.
Hubby was not pleased and brought this up to the waitress..
The manager came to speak to apologize too and offer to heat it up for us.
We didn't want to wait any longer (as we waited for quite some time beforehand),
so we kindly rejected his offer.
When the bill came, he gave us 100% off and we only had to pay for tax which is around $1 plus...
We gave a huge tip to the waitress and left...
Quite happy the manager did this for us! Thank you, even we didn't get your name!
Kindly clicked the ads for me! Thanks!
